  • “Alexa, Ask DGLux5 to Update My Dashboard”

    DSA, Alexa, and DGLux5 

    If you’re interested in integrating Alexa with DSA, or learning more about DSA in general, this post will definitely help you get started. It's also great for DGLux5 users who want to use the Amazon Echo to run their dashboards. We created a simple DGLux5 dashboard that updates in real-time to reflect commands that we give to our Echo.

  • Digital Command Center in DGLux5

    We made a remote control console that changes the content displayed on some TVs. Watch the videos below to see how we did it. An effect like this could improve a trade show booth, a kiosk, a presentation, or any other context where you want to seamlessly and remotely change the content displayed in a browser. This project takes advantage of the easy data hosting capability of DSA and the rapid application development of DGLux5.

    Distributed Services Architecture (DSA) is is an open-source platform that facilitates communication among devices, logic, and applications in the IoT. You can download it here.

    DGLux5 is a drag-and-drop, rapid development platform especially for data-driven applications and the Internet of Things. DGLux5 licenses are free for students and educators.

  • Drawing and Gaming on the Sense HAT with DSA

    DGLux DSA Sense HAT

    We just did two projects for our Raspberry Pi running DSA. First, we created a quick browser application that lets you draw pictures on the Sense HAT’s LED matrix by pointing and clicking. Second, we made some logic that moves a pixel on the Sense HAT using the joystick—this tutorial lays the groundwork for developing 2-D LED games and more. We did both these projects in the drag-and-drop visual programming environment of DGLux5, so you don’t need to know any code to follow along.
